ESTRADIOL/LEVONORGESTREL

Climara Pro (Estradiol / Levonorgestrel Patch) is an estrogen/progestin combo patch that works to balance hormone changes in your body during and after menopause. Estradiol (an estrogen) reduces hot flashes and night sweats and prevents bone loss, but can also harm cells in the uterus after menopause. Levonorgestrel (a progestin) protects the uterus from damage. Source: Iodine  *
